not get the job done. in the next commercial break you have an ad that says barack obama was never a nice guy, he is a radical socialist lunatic who's trying to take your job. the more money did not feed into a larger narrative in a way that i think the romney campaign would have preferred. a second reason why it is less effective now is under sec rules, the super pac campaign are able to get lowest available rate for their advertising right now. super pacs are not allowed to do that. they are spending far more, sometimes three times as much, and to get the same money. did the third reason i think you're seeing things less effective, in the last month or two, obama's citizens are waking up and spending more dollars. a bunch of people were coming at the last minute. we have not really seen that. the small dollar fund-raising model has been able to expand nicely for obama toward the end. romney has had to spend a good fortune in september going to fund-raisers trying to collect these $2,500 checks. he has been very successful. it really was a strategic disadvantage at that time in the

over the next few years, from the perspective of president obama, and he has made no secret of the fact of his initiative that he is eager to pursue step-by-step in reductions of nuclear weapons. that is one priority goal for this administration. it is a preamble to the start treaty. it is a goal they have both articulated. i think we will be looking for ways to accomplish those for the reductions. it laid out three goals for the next round of negotiations. he said we want to seek reductions in non-strategic nuclear weapons, non-deployed nuclear-weapons, and for the reductions and deploy nuclear weapons. to those three categories are new to the arms reduction process. we've always gone after weapons that are deployed on their delivery vehicle. this is what we have always counted and reduced. this is what you can see even from overhead satellites. it is important to recognize the next age of arms control but president obama has laid out is very ambitious. it to require us to take a good look at verification technologies and how we conduct inspections. it is a significant challenge.

next president. he could have one or two or three additional nominees. that we give you president obama the opportunity to appoint the majority of the members of the supreme court. or it will give president romney the chance to possibly shift the balance. anyone replacing justice kennedy was certainly affect the balance, make it a solid liberal are solidly conservative court. >> he said retirement during this term, my prediction would be none. they all seem to be pretty healthy. >> they can all say it will be great to have so and so replace me. for years is a long time. -- four years is a long time. >> will you join me in thanking our panelists.

say to me, you are either part of the problem or part of the solution. president obama has become part of the problem. mitt romney is the solution. [applause] the other thing he said is in this country, every generation of americans fixes their problems so they can leave the next generation better off. that is the american legacy. for the first time in the history of our country, we know if we stick with the same failed policies of the last four years, we guarantee our children get a diminished future. we cannot allow that to happen. it is our moral obligation to save the american dream for our children and grandchildren. [applause] this is why we need leadership. take a look at mitt romney's record, history, the man he is, and then you will know this is the kind of man we need to lead us. mitt romney knows firsthand what it takes to grow the economy, to grow businesses, and create jobs. he has helped to create tens of thousands of jobs. being successful in business is a good thing. we admire that. we do not resent that. we want more of that. we want a successful business people.

submit a detailed budget. obama has a detailed budget that cbo's cord and is producing 2.1 trillion -- cbo analyze it is producing 2.4 trillion over the next 10 years. perversely, i am not sure i'd love to see mitt romney the deal all of the tax expenditure changes he said he would ultimately come up with. the problem is in campaigns people start putting out more detailed proposals and mobilized opposition. there are some things and the tax and and, areas like the 1983 social security commission that are better achieved if the parties can hold hands and do not start out being a obama proposal or mitt romney proposal or a democratic proposal or a republican proposal. i am less interested in what this says in the debates but whoever wins in the week or two after the election. that is the time to step up and do the broader leadership. >> what would you like your president obama said? -- to hear president obama say? >> the we're not want of a deal that has revenues and spending in the biggest obstacle is on the revenue side, and i do believe my perception is correct, and that is republi

a plan. barack obama has offered a clear plan. shift responsibility to the iraqis over the next 16 months. draw down our combat troops. ironically the same plan that maliki, the prime minister of iraq and george bush are now negotiating. the only odd man out here, only one left out is john mccain, number one. number two, with regard to barack obama not -- quote -- "funding the troops," john mccain voted the exact same way. john mccain voted against funding the troops because of an amendment he voted against had a timeline in it to draw down american troops. and john said i'm not going to fund the troops if in fact there's a timeline. barack obama and i agree fully and completely on one thing: you've got to have a time line to draw down the troops and shift responsibility to the iraqis. we're spending $10 billion a month while the iraqis have an $80 billion surplus. barack says it's time for them to spend their own money and have the 400,000 military weÂ™ve trained for them begin to take their own responsibility and gradually over six months -- 16 months, withdrawal. john mccain
